ntpdate is depricated. Look at the man page for 'sntp'.

I used to use ntpdate to query the time of a given time server occasionally.
'ntpdate -q <time.server.address>' showed the difference between the system
and server time.
Now in openSUSE 11.2 ntpdate is not available anymore, it is replaced by ntpd.
How can I use ntpd on command line to check the difference between server and
system time without adjusting the latter one (ie. imitate -q option of
ntpdate)? I have read the ntpd man page but could not find out myself how to
do it.
